Crocodile says goodbye to the jungle and heads for the bright lights of London to find freedom and adventure. But despite the famous sights, city life on a stone-cold street begins to pall... Will crocodile tears become real tears for friends, family and home? A fantastic picture book for reading aloud by poetry legend Roger McGough and award-winning animator Greg McLeod.
